A woman whose body was found in a Sydney park in February still has not been identified, police say.

According to a Fairfax report, the woman was living in a cave in the affluent suburb of Middle Cove when she died, and was found with very few personal belongings.

Police have asked for the public’s help to identify the woman, whose body was found by a member of the public in an area of dense bushland in Willis Park, Middle Cove, on February 15.

It is believed that the woman had been living in the cave for as long as six to seven years.

Police say that despite extensive inquiries, they have been unable to establish her identity.

A post mortem revealed nothing suspicious about her death, with police alleging that she died as a consequence of being homeless.

They say she used the name of Jemima Ann King in Queensland in 2002 but they do not believe that was her real identity.

It is thought she lived in both New South Wales and Queensland.

Officers from North Shore Local Area Command today released a photo of the woman which was taken in 2002.

She is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged between 35 and 50 years, 155 to 160cm tall, of a thin build with brown hair with yellow streaks.
